Last June I came home to find that my pump motor had been removed, Sand filter plumbing destroyed, 350lb sand filter flipped over on it's side and Electrical wires ripped out. All water weights had been punctured and cover dropped into pool. The pool is literally a breeding ground for the local frogs! Our own cement pond. I was quoted $2,200 for all new equipment.
I was told to check if the pump motor is in the bottom of the pool - however since the water is green and I have no way to circulate water not sure how to accomplish that. (skimmer would never lift that!!) I really want to get this up and running this summer for my kids trying to DIY as much as we possibly can!
I had a Hayward 1.5 superpump and have read a number of posts about buying a 2-speed motor to save electricity $$$ (I'm in!!)
Would the sand filter really need to be replaced or for plumbing purposes new would be better.
Any help and guidance would be appreciated.
